How to get there: From I-80 take the Lake Manawa exit #2 (S. 24th St.) in Council Bluffs. Take a right from the exit. Go South on 24th St. to Hwy. 92 (2nd light).

Rumor is the new Trek Madone 55 SR C 2009 will be there...just hope there arent too many slick spots on the road to try this fast bike.

Madone 55 SRC ... huh? Pretty sure that bike doesn't exist.

I don't know everything, but I know about Trek bikes.

well, the trek store said the madone 55 will be there. as for the 2009 SR C model, i was hoping that would be the model making it to Manawa.

i suppose mark would have some insight to this topic, eh?

The Demos are Madone 5.5 with Sram force. Hence...

Madone 5.5 frame...

SR...meaning SRAM...

C...meaning compact...

So yes the 2009 Madone 5.5 with sram force and a compact crank will be at the demo.
